Being There For Someone
Doing Your Best
I didnt have the kind of childhood or family life that would have given me any perspective on what a happy home or relationship would feel like. So I havent had as much success in my relationships as I would have liked. You cant live your life blaming your failures on your parents and what they did or didnt do for you. Youre dealt the cards that youre dealt. I realized it was a waste of time to be angry at my parents and feel sorry for myself.
Indecision is the most uns..y thing on the planet. I dont know if Im s..y but I think decisiveness is s..y. I also lose trust and faith in them when I realise Im a bit on my own and thats a very disheartening feeling.
Falling in love with yourself is kind of interesting. You put so much stock into other people and then youre like, Im going to just date me for a while. Im just finding a sense of calm. I feel like Im getting smarter as I get older. But I will always be a hopeless romantic no matter what I learn.
I have been much more objective about my childhood and my relationship with my mother in these last few years. There were several low points in my life and they all helped make up my character so I probably wouldnt want to do away with them because I like being flawed. It helped me grow and change and become better and stronger. I feel excited about the last few years of my life. I pride myself on them and I didnt know I had that much discipline. Ive worked really hard. I want to make sure I have a sense of balance between work and life because work is my life and the lines can get really blurry.
If youre 35 and single and its a choice, it feels fine. So I didnt settle with the wrong person yet. Big deal!
Ive spent a lot of time in my life dedicating myself to love or the pursuit of love or the understanding of love. And now Ive stopped believing in happy endings and Ive started believing in good days.
If youre a 16-year-old and in high school and it doesnt work out with the guy, and everyones talking about it in the hallways, its the same feeling. Its all relative.
I have been in long-distance relationships my whole life and I find that they take an extraordinary amount of work. I dont think they are much different from a relationship when you live across the street. They just take work and you want that work to be something thats fun and reciprocal. The best kinds of relationships are the ones where you dont feel like you are doing all the work and that the other person is never meeting you half-way. I think that just breeds an empty, lonely resentment. But if you both bend together and go, Were going to fix this, we are going to make it work, we are going to make plans so that we feel we have things to look forward to
I swear to God, with some of these romantic comedies, these women are being shot in the butt with steroids, and I feel like theyll eat the husband alive on their wedding day. It just terrifies me, I dont relate to that at all. Im not at that place in my life where I want to play a character who says, I just have to get married.
I feel like I do have a family, they are my friends and they really mean everything to me. I dont know what Id do without my friends. I feel like I almost live my life to be able to have the luxury of being around them. And I feel like, if Ive got in touch with what is important in life, my friends are the first thing on my list. They are my heart.
I just want to make my friends laugh. I want to make them feel that if they had a bad day I could be someone who provides dinners or atmospheres or weekends where we can all sort of go away and relax and sort of spend time with each other. I definitely like organizing things socially. Do I cook for them? No, no, no. I provide a place and some wine and we just try and make each other laugh.
Being There For Someone quotes
Great Friendship quotes
I feel like Im so grateful for my life. I really love my family and I feel their blood in my veins. But I grew up in a very un-posh environment with a struggling single mother. We were both paying the rent together. It was a tough circumstance, but I think that gave me a sense of gratitude. I worked as a waitress so Im a crazy tipper, I respect people that work. I work myself really hard and I think to be raised in a working class environment was very helpful. As extraordinary and fancy and decadent as the Barrymores are I did not grow up in that kind of environment.
Im really good on my own. I was good in my early teens, and then I got really bad at being alone for like 10 years. And then for the last decade Ive developed such a love of my independence that I have to go, Okay, youve had dinner by yourself three nights in a row, now you have to see your friends.
I think everyone expects you to kinda know right away what all the plans are. And I'm like, oh goodness, it happened a month ago. Do I not have it together, or is it okay to keep daydreaming? I root for his happiness and people's happiness. I like positivity! I'm a sucker for it.
If you don't take risks, you'll have a wasted soul.
Carpe Diem quotes
There are so many pressures that are put upon young women. Whatever we can do to alleviate that and help women feel beautiful about who we are inside, which is the only beauty there truly is, is so nice. Let's get down and dirty. Let's be a real girl.
Love is the hardest habit to break, and the most difficult to satisfy.
I want people to love me, but it's not going to hurt me if they don't.
